As we diligently brush our teeth twice a day sometimes three, I don’t ever recall questioning the toothpaste brands we use in our mouths. Obsessed as we are with ensuring the products in our skincare are free from toxins, I wonder, why aren’t we doing the same with oral care?
Is it just me or have you also noticed a rise in chic, good-looking and good-for-you oral care brands – could it be because of Kendall Jenner’s new Instagram-worthy brand, Moon? To be totally honest, I’m just glad we’re starting to notice the severity of practising good oral hygiene. Not only does practising good dental hygiene prevent bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease, but did you know establishing good oral hygiene has been proven to be essential to achieving and maintaining, overall physical and emotional well-being?
Our mouths are the gateway to our body, so nasties found in mouthwash and all kinds of toothpaste can lead to poor health – let’s just say, poor oral hygiene can lead to not only gum disease but it’s been linked to heart disease, cancer and diabetes!
Now that I’ve got your attention, read on to find 5 better-for-you oral care brands in Australia to make the switch to.
